And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

Hi, am new here, I just had to join, looks like fun... :D
Q. Rockwell C-1057, some one is having a laugh,  :D :D :D right? I have stuidied spaceflight/travel since I could walk/talk/pee on my own  :o , I have more book's than enough, all three editions of Dennis Jenkins  ;D excellent work on the Space Shuttle, but have never, ever seen this design, come on its a wind up.... the nearest thing to this shape is the Burnelli series of transports from the 1930's-40's...
Your thoughts gentleman please...
Regards, best wishes and thank you for listening (reading)

My thought? Its not a shuttle, its a sized-up adapter for vacuum cleaner!  :D

Im not building models at all, but this one looks really good.

Bizarre aviation expert.

Only insofar as it was a somewhat smart-ass answer by Rockwell designers to the question of shortening the Shuttle. They knew it wouldn't get accepted, but it was, seemingly, a good way to get management off their back.
